Ring is a vibrating alarm designed for people who hate the loud blaring sounds of a typical alarm. The charging cradle is where you set what time you want each ring to go off. The ring fits over the tip of your finger and when that opportune time arrives, it vibrates. Putting the ring back on the dock shuts off the alarm.

The benefits are two-fold. It’s perfect for couples whom wake up at different hours. Never again will you be disturbed from your precious sleep when the alarm goes off. It’s a discrete sensation that only you feel. Another application is for the hearing impaired helping to improve their quality of life.




A vibrating ring that you wear? By Yanko Designs?

REALLY?!

Actually, that's pretty darn clever. The situations they mention are perfect applications.

I like it too, but wonder if I'll be able to sleep with that on my finger????

Hmmmmmmm.......not yet on the market. If it were like a patch or something it would probably be better for me!

Does it come in XL? I have... large hands.

Also, can you set it to go off repeatedly for those times when you just don't want to get out of bed?

Yeah, I get the joke, and I see the... uh.... let's just say 'potential for other uses' here...

...but I have to say, this IS pretty clever! Finally could stop waking the wife when I had to get up for work in the mornings...

It'll be great until it wakes me up and I'm thinking I'm getting electrocuted. Not that it's happen to me before.

Edit: Because misspelling electrocuted is just as bad as getting electrocuted.

it'd be a great present for the neighboring apartment since their alarm clock that goes off at 1am could wake the dead...
